Today was my bi-weekly time to spend on grooming our pooch. She is a miniature poodle and of course needs combing and brushing between her every 8 week professional grooming and a bath in the middle of that time. She also has to have her teeth brushed. And because she is a poodle and their hair grows just like human hair, she also has to have the hair inside her ears pulled out! That is the chore that leaves me shaking my head - I can't believe that I actually spend time doing this! I can't think of any other chore that I find quite so "ridiculous" in the context of life - but of course it is necessary to keep her from getting ear infections.
Do you have any chores that leave you shaking your head in bemusement over how you are spending your time?
